Mellissa Tong (Music MFA 93) tells us: “Two of the compilation books that I’m a part of became best sellers on Amazon last October. It was incredibly exciting to have both come out in the same month. The first book is about 100 influential entrepreneurs in the US and how they overcame their biggest obstacles. My story was about getting over the fear of public speaking. The second book is a word book, and my word is ‘change.’”
